  • Behind the Blog: This week's theme is Being Thankful: - With Thanksgiving having been just last week here in the US, and Christmas approaching, I thought it might be nice to take a break from all the holiday hustle and bustle for a  moment and reflect on the things that we are all thankful for this year. What are you most thankful for? Are there any particular events that have made you particularly thankful or appreciative of anyone or anything? In relation to books and media:
    What are some books and movies that teach good lessons about being thankful? Who are some characters who learn to be thankful and appreciate what they have?
So, as you can see, it's going to be another jam packed week here at Melissa's Midnight Musings. I hope you'll all stop by and check out these great posts I have lined up.

I loved signed books, how awesome and I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on Casual Vacancy. Have an awesome week! The Sunday Post

I haven't read anything by Mitch Albom yet...I just am so intimidated i think!

Melissas Midnight Musings said...

@Kimba: Thanks!

Andra: I know what you mean. This will be the first book by Albom that I've read and I'm slightly intimidated too.

That signed copy of the Timekeepers is very nice. I love the cover on that one too. I read a few of his other books, and while I enjoyed them, I think my tastes have changed a lot. But I hope you enjoy it though, Melissa!

Tiffany Drew said...

I had won a copy of The Timekeeper a few months ago but never received it :( I'll be looking forward to your review to see if I should go ahead and purchase my own copy. You got some great books this week, happy reading!

Thanks for stopping by Book Cover Justice :)

Melissas Midnight Musings said...

Thank you, and thanks for stopping by :)

Thanks! I've heard mixed reviews about this one, so I'm a bit skeptical, but we'll see.


Thanks! I'm sorry you never got your copy that you won, did you contact the person/blog tour that you won it from?
